...or what shouldn't be: A woman who attended one of the Echo Park Historical Society* walking tours recently emailed a set of poignant photographs she took of the houses the LAUSD would like to demolish on the south-western edge of Echo Park.
9A, as you may recall, is the site, named by the LAUSD where said agency seized the homes of over 200 people in an effort to build a school for pupils who don't exist, as falling enrollment in area schools has proved. Samuel Beckett would have loved it. The people who lost their homes don't think it's funny.
In December the LAUSD was ordered by the court to conduct an environmental impact review. It now appears the staff of David Tokofsky are trying to rush the review through before this summer, when Tokofsky steps down as board member of the LAUSD's fifth district. The school, after all, is his baby.
